About this project

SAM SPADE meets DAWN OF THE DEAD

In the finest film noir traditions, DEADTOWN follows a classic HARD BOILED detective set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by ZOMBIES!

Set in a post-apocolyptic near future, DeadTown follows the exploits of Chan who, having lost his family in the zombie plague, works as a private detective in a world overrun by the undead.

Those with the means live “Upstairs”, in skyscrapers specially designed to separate them from the infested street level; everyone else is “Downstairs”. The survivors struggle to carve out a life with the constant threat of zombies hanging over them.

Visually inspired by the rich black and white style of films like Touch of Evil and The Maltese Falcon, DeadTown combines film noir with the zombie horror genre, in an edgy re-imagining of the hard boiled detective thriller.

This project will be brought to life in both printed and MOTION COMIC form by M2.

M2 is pioneering Motion Comics as a legitimate new form of storytelling that has yet to be exploited in any meaningful way. We are also the only company producing them in 3D! (which is super cool)

You can see what we're up to at www.M2Action.com where the DeadTown teaser is also playing...

---
DeadTown already has a publishing deal in place with 12-Gauge Comics (www.12gaugecomics.com) as well as distribution partners for the Motion Comics with well know online new media producers. There will be no issue having the final product be available via iTunes, Amazon, X-Box, Playstation, Hulu and more...

... We just need to fund the initial production budget.

Additionally we have developed a detailed 80 page bible that details the additional exploitation of the concept into live action, web series, games and more.

...We just need to fund the initial production budget.

CAA (The Entertainment Industries Largest Talent Agency) is on board to help rep the project.

...We just need to fund the initial production budget.

Help us do that and announce the kickoff at this years San Diego Comic Con 2010 and we'll be forever in your debt.

...We just need to fund the initial production budget. (see a theme here...?)
